COVID-19 UPDATE

COVID-19 - Latest UK Government Update (last updated November 10th 2020)

From today, Thursday 5th November, the UK Government Guidance for the lockdown period suggests that Complementary Therapists in England may contine to offer treatments, as long as you meet the following criteria: you are working in a private health clinic setting (ie not a spa or beauty venue), you have completed an updated risk assessment for the lockdown, you take comprehensive notes clearly stating why each treatment is essential for health or remedial purposes, and you continue with all safety measures, including pre-appointment screening and phone/digital consultations.
.
We also strongly recommend that you contact your insurance provider, and that you also consider contacting your Local Health Authority for written clarification that you may continue working.
.
Mobile therapists are not currently allowed to work
.
We are currently recommending to our Members that you do not work within your home; this is unless and until we receive clearer guidance regarding whether working in your home is permitted. We will update this page as soon as we have further information.  
.
If your core therapy is statutorily regulated (eg osteopaths, chiropractors), you are advised to follow guidelines from your specific professional associations. We advise our Members in ScotlandWales and Northern Ireland to continue to follow the guidelines in place in ScotlandWales and Northern Ireland.
.
We would like to remind all of our Members that you are welcome to contact any Study Group Leader or CSS Board Member if you would like further advice or a listening ear in these very difficult times. 
With Warmest Wishes from the CSS Board
